HardTech Labs seeks startups founded on the premise of scientific validation. Through our novel early-stage applied science accelerator model and partnership with world class research institutions, HardTech Labs catalyzes commercially viable, life-changing intellectual property through its startups.
HardTech Labs is flipping the traditional accelerator model on its head by putting scientific validation first, instead of creating companies focused initially on rapid growth. We combine biotech, software, and hardware to build comprehensive platforms tackling the full spectrum of a particular problem. We fund companies whose founders have taken visionary and potentially transformative ideas and have developed them into scientifically valid products: a proven concept with filed IP, consistent data, and a supporting team of researchers. Join us.
Learning from the traditional growth focused model, HTL Life accelerator is taking a novel approach better suited to early-stage hard science startup acceleration by focusing on scientific validation through an unparalleled comprehensive program. We’ve partnered with renowned institutions worldwide so startups will have intensive support to enable a solid, science-based foundation that will maximize their success when they shift to market growth.
In our six-month to one-year, San Diego-based program, startups will have exclusive access to extensive data repositories, biotech development platforms, HIPAA compliant data collection and analysis software platforms, premier wet labs and hardware prototyping spaces, advisors and mentors preeminent in their fields, as well as up to $250,000 in initial financing with potential follow-on investment. The accelerator allows access to cutting edge and comprehensive biotech labs in the institute.

HTL Biotech is further propelled by our integrated HTL Life accelerator which gives us the ability to invest in and advance the most dynamic founders and ground-breaking products. Our focus on short FDA regulatory cycles, products in the health and wellness, beauty, agricultural and lifestyle areas, and rapid company and product development ensures a relatively quick path to market for our partner research institutions.
